  • Main Street disappointing for tourists

    To the editor:
    A couple of weeks ago my husband and I had the pleasure of taking a 10-day vacation to Kentucky and Tennessee. We had a great time, by the way, and truly enjoyed seeing your part of the USA.
    As many tourists do, one of our stops was a tour of Wild Turkey. Since we had some time to spend before our tour, we drove to Lawrenceburg for lunch [on Main Street]. We were very impressed with the food, the decor and the owners. I even recommended it to some other tourists.

  • Check the facts before voting

    To the editor:
    It is a fact that you cannot run a household or a business or government without a budget. It is a fact that if you do not, you will be either broke, bankrupt or out of business.
    What would you do if you had shares in a company and the boss or the president of that company said I am not going to change my way of running this business and continue to spend money without regard to the consequences of going broke.

  • Vote for Johnson-Gray ticket this November

    To the editor:
    My choice for president/vice president in 2012 will be Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray.
    To many they may be a “third party choice,” a vote for or against the Democrat incumbents or the Republican challengers or even a wasted vote. To me, Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray are, simply, the best team for the job.
    Gov. Johnson’s plan for our nation’s debt is brutal but necessary. Massive federal spending cuts now. Submit a balanced budget now.

  • Vote to rescue America next month

    To the editor:
    In the early seventies, our old incumbents in Congress and OPEC limited oil production in American. That deal planted the seeds of the latest anti-American demonstrations in the Middle East.
    Where was the harm? OPEC would supply America with cheaper oil, our old incumbents would make money, OPEC would make money, gasoline would be cheaper, and environmentalists would rejoice. It was a win-win for everybody but those nasty American oil companies with their overpriced oil and outrageously high 40-cents-per-gallon gasoline.

  • Public officials have duty to represent

    To the editor:
    Two years ago, my husband turned 65 and registered for Medicare. In November of the same year, he had hip surgery.
    After the surgery, we received a $61,000 doctors’ bill. After contacting Medicare, I found they had made a mistake on the effective date. After weeks of pleading with Social Security to correct the error, I turned to our congressmen and senators.

  • Medical clinic thankful for support

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County Community Clinic and its fundraising committee thanks those who helped to make our fundraiser, 2012 Grill Master Grill Off on Sept. 22, a success. The event, held at the county park, raised $808 with donations still coming in to help with operation and maintenance of the clinic.

  • Re-enactment entertained, educated

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank those involved in the resent Civil War reenactment of the Battle of Dog Walk.
    Based on attendance, this event was a tremendous success. The information provided from the living history was both educational and entertaining.
    Guests were presented with previously unknown history of Anderson County.
    Future events of this nature would be beneficial for Anderson County for educational and economical value.

  • Please return prescription sunglasses

    To the editor:
    This letter is a plea to the person who found a pair of prescription sunglasses in the restroom at Goodwill on Sunday, Sept. 23.
    They belong to a great-grandmother who cannot afford to replace them.
    They were purchased two weeks ago and are really necessary.
    As you can tell they have bifocal lenses and extra-dark tinting because of an eye condition.
    Please return them to the Goodwill store, or drop them in the mailbox at 1013 Bradley Drive.
    It will be greatly appreciated.

  • Why no furlough for city employees?

    To the editor:
    I am a state employee. We have taken furloughs to help with the budget crisis and the recession.
    I am just wondering why can’t our city officials do the same? I know this can’t be possible with law enforcement but why not with other non-emergency staff?
    With no raises given, gas prices on the rise and cost of living increases, the residents of Lawrenceburg can’t afford any more tax increases.
    We need to put this pressure on our city officials.

  • Conway ‘misguided’ as cops play tax collector

    To the editor:
    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway’s insistence on lowering the speed limit on Versailles Road is misguided.
    The recent accidents there were not caused by speed. They were caused by human error and/or carelessness.
    People drive what they feel is a safe and reasonable speed regardless of the speed limit, and lowering  already artificially low limits only creates another speed trap for police to use to create revenue.
    People are not going to slow down, but they can be made to drive more safely.
